2. First responders: the innate immune response Every immune response has to start somewhere—but how does the system know when to respond? This fundamental question has occupied immunologists for decades, as it is central to understanding both normal responses (e.g. to infections) and abnormal responses (e.g. in auto-immune diseases), as well as in designing vaccines and new therapies for cancer and infectious diseases. In this chapter we will look at how the first triggers are pulled and how important these initial interactions are.

5. Tuberculosis Mycobacterium tuberculosis , might be the oldest human disease. It is part of a family of mycobacterial diseases, including M. africanum, M. bovis , and M. cannetti , that have been evolving for perhaps three hundred million years. The oldest fossil evidence for a tuberculosis-like disease comes from a five-hundred-thousand-year-old Homo erectus skull found in Turkey with TB-like lesions. M. tuberculosis —the type that affects humans—emerged in Africa about seventy thousand years ago.
